Oh, great...now I just ripped off the words from a famous song by Fats Domino because I'm not clever enough to write my own titles!!
This place is SO cool! It's a rock and roller mama's dream place :) Of course being the "crowd o'phobe" that I am, I had to go on at a (very) off time, just so I could enjoy the place a little bit. It's huge, with several different rooms, including the "Elvis room" (tip: He is NOT there, so don't report any fake Elvis sighting, but I did, however, smell the essence of white jumpsuit and sweaty scarves throughtout the room...there's a lot of live music, games, a rockin' jukebox and some very good food.
I loved the veggie sandwich. But what really blew me away is that the guy who owns this place has about 10 million toys around the room, I am talking toys that make a kid at heart like me die inside with envy...Beatles' dolls, bobbleheads, classic toys of the 60's and 70's, Pee Wee Herman toys and collector cars. The walls are filled with rock and roll memorabilia (hey's it's early morning...did I spell that correctly?!) The only thing that creeped me out were the animal plaques on the wall: looked like a hunter's convention in there. My day would have been perfect if Dick Cheney didn't shoot the waitress...he thought she was an elk. (yeah, I know...but what did you expect from a Clinton supporter?)"
The restaurant is also located in a very hip part of town (for Chicago folks, it's a cross between Clark Street and the North/Damen areas)
